Abstract


The Sucuriju community, extreme east of the Amapa State has its economy moved by the fishery and the capture of the "caranguejo-uça" (Ucides cordatus). The methodology consisted in the in-locu observation and survey questionary analysis of the Z-4 fishery association (124 fishermen), were considered: fishery region, apparatus used, captured species and others. The fishery in the community is divided among two main regions: the Lakes region, where the fishery is done by 36 % of the fishermen, and the coastal region practiced by 56 % of the fishermen. One of the factors affecting this division is the economic importance of the most captured species: the Gurijuba (Arius parkerii), found at the coast, with a relative capture frequency of 61 %; and the Pirarucu(Arapaima gigas), natural species of the lakes, has a relative capture frequency of 39 %. This work identified important differences between the two fishery regions, the coast is inserted in a fishery activity based in unbalanced work relations that affects the traditional activity cause by changes in the captured fish species. However, the catchment in the lakes has been responsible for the maintenance of the concious and rational use of the fishery resources in the region.
